Lily Allen For Chanel Bags Fall 2009

After what seems like years of waiting, the pictures of Lily Allen for Chanel bags Fall 2009 campaign have finally surfaced.

The new Chanel handbag line is called “Coco Cocoon” which launches in October.

It’s a collection of reversible, lightweight nylon and lambskin bags in black, ecru, navy, or beige. Turn them inside out, and you’ve got the same tote, overnight duffel, or hanging garment bag in quilted garnet—the original lining colour of the house’s classic 2.55 bag.

As much as I didn’t particular like the idea of Lily Allen being the face of Chanel, she does make these hideous bags look really cute in the ad campaign.

I like the slight reference to “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”, plus I sense a bit of Victoria Beckham too.

Lily is still very much Lily in these ads. They haven’t tried to make her someone she’s not which I was initially worried about.

The pictures below in full colour paint a very ugly picture. Sorry Uncle Karl, but me no likey.

Social Events Of The Week

Hopings Got Talent Fundraising Event, London

Lily Allen looked outstanding wearing a prom-esqe red Prada dress, teamed with taupe Fendi bow-front peep-toes, and a blue quilted Chanel bag. One of many that she owns.

Her make-up was flawless, I love the a pop red on her lips, and I adore her neat black bob.

Surprisingly well put together.

Sienna Miller tried her hand at a glam rock chick look by teaming a studded Temperley London cropped jacket, a studded vest and a studded Temperley London belt with faded black skinny jeans and studded ankle boots.

I glad Sienna has managed wear a casual look that doesn’t include a hint of boho, but she has over done things with the studded details. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if she was wearing studded pants.

Her look was completed with a Romanek crocodile clutch.

“Public Enemies” Chicago Premiere

French actress Marion Cotillard wore a very summery lilac strapless Christian Dior dress which she paired with silver open-toe heels and a double buckle belt.

A curly opdo and a brown clutch completed this stunning look.

Sam Fine’s “The Basics of Beauty” DVD Launch Party, New York

Without a single hair out of place Iman stepped a little out of her comfort-zone of glamorous gowns and tea dresses, to wear this black shimmering Derek Lam Spring 2009 jumpsuit with harem pants.

Divine as always.

2009 Los Angeles Film Festival’s Opening Night Premiere Of “Paper Man”

Christina Ricci kept her look simple wearing a purple dress with a black elasticated waist.

White pointy pumps and a quilted Chanel bag completed the look, but Christina opted out of wearing a bra.

Grand Opening Of The New BOA Steakhouse In West Hollywood, LA

Looking fabulous is really easy for Terri Seymour as the former model has a stunning figure.

Whether she’s wearing a designer gown or this strapless floral Topshop dress, it’s almost impossible for her to have an off day.

She completed her look with YSL Trib Two slingbacks.

8th Annual Four Seasons Of Hope Gala, New York

I feels like something is missing from Estelle’s Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 black jumpsuit.

She has a pop of colour via the purple pumps, but I’m still missing something.

Barnes & Noble Book Signing, New York

Lauren Conrad opts for a cute casual style for her New York book signing at Barnes & Noble.

The star wore a very similar look to her last book signing.  Her she wore a loose fitting black and white top with black shorts and black Christian Louboutin pumps.

Wavy hair, a single bracelet and a megawatt smile completed the look.

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better? Lily Allen or Debra Messing


As much as I like Lily Allen, was a tad disappointed when she was the first celebrity to wear this Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2008 fur print gown, as I had always imagined it on Sarah Jessica Parker.

Lily wore this gown when she arrived at the GQ Men of the Year Awards at the Royal Opera House in London last year.

This was the night she swore off booze, after a drunken verbal assault on Sir Elton John.

Actress Debra Messing hosted the 11th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards in LA, and this was one of 4 gowns she wore that evening.

I really don’t like Lily hair, plus Debra’s necklace was a work of art, so she wins this for me.

Chanel Fall 2009 Front Row

I wasn’t crazy about Freida Pinto’s Elle Style Awards Chanel dress, but this white Chanel dress I LOVE.

The beauty is in it’s chicness, the bold brooches, and the origami sleeves. Outstanding.

Best Dress Of The Week candidate for sure.

Bond Girl, Olga Kurylenko wore Chanel Spring 2009 ensemble, which included a black bowed detailed sleeveless blush pink blouse.

The look has no wow factor, but that doesn’t stop her from looking absolutely beautiful.

Kate Moss made a rare fashion week front row appearance for Chanel, sitting alongside her boyfriend Jamie Hince, and photographer Mario Testino.

The supermodel kept her look simple wearing a black tuxedo suit, which had a white trim on the pants, with black platform heels.

I have never quite understood how the Chanel-Lily Allen connection came about. On paper, it doesn’t seem like a great fit. But she does pick great pieces, that suit her personality, like this Chanel Resort 2009 pink and navy dress.

Her look is complete with Louboutin’s and white Chanel purse.

Claudia Schiffer look is very Librarian for someone who is wearing head to toe Chanel.

After offending a very small number of in Herve Leger, Beth Ditto opted for a more sombre look when she arrived at the Chanel shoe this afternoon.
